LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police are looking for a bicyclist they say crushed a man to death with his own car.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/2eSuVuk ) that 37-year-old Andrew Patsukevich died at a hospital Sunday night.

Police say the driver was in Van Nuys when he honked at a bicyclist who was passing him heading the other way. The biker responded by hitting the car’s windshield with his fist.

Police say Patsukevich left the car and the bicyclist hit him in the face, knocking him down, got into the car and hit the gas.

Patsukevich’s wife had gotten out of the car but Patsukevich held onto the driver’s door. Police say the car thief then rammed the car against some parked cars, crushing Patsukevich.

His 2001 Lexus was found Tuesday.
